Very stress free experience
Great break and just what we needed. It was first class.
Rebecca Wilkie was extremely helpful in all respects
Excellent service given.
Superb, personal service from Ray. From communication to personal knowledge ... couldn't fault it
Everything was perfect.
No lounge at Cape Town airport for Air France
Fast, knowledgeable and super helpful, all went like clockwork, and we had an amazing holiday - thank you!
Just back from another holiday booked by Ryan. We have been booking with him for years now and wouldn’t think of doing anything else. Excellent service
The usual excellent service from Cody and the team.
Everything went to plan. An excellent service.
Eric is AMAZING!
Best travel company we’ve ever used. Would highly recommend and will be using them again.
Leo was very knowledgeable and helpful. Very on the ball with our queries and helped us during the trip
Everything went according to plan. As I was the lead of a group I was worried but everything went like clockwork, thanks to you
Amazing service as usual
Remind passengers with early departures (eg 2 am), that airport pickup is on the date before the flight!
After giving my requirements they came up with the perfect hotel on the perfect island. Best holiday ever.
Always excellent service
Find a way of us being able to avoid being seated near to babies in Business Class!
Grant was there for us with every question answered. Will be using DialAFlight for future holidays.
Fantastic service, above and beyond any other agent. Our holiday was exactly as described and surpassed our expectations. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending and will be booking again
Debbie listened to what we were looking for and delivered in every way
Thanks to Michelle Dooler again after many years of excellent work and always fulfilling our expectations. Everything went smoothly and the holiday was perfect
I think it was a mistake to agree to Mauritius in January. We had a cyclone that cut 4 days from our holiday and the weather was not great. The Oberoi was fantastic
Varu was an excellent venue. Thank you Brody for your help.
Ian Newton great. Flights both ways badly late.
When the cyclone hit, your emergency response and day teams did everything needed to make sure we were delivered home safely. Thank you for just being there and being professional at all times.
Dubai better than expected and very good hotel. Maldives hotel did not have a house reef but they did boat trips to local reefs. Hotel pretty good but not quite Villamendhu!
Some of us just don't do theme parks. The last time I went on a rollercoaster (by mistake, thinking it was a scenic water ride), I was green for the rest of the day.
So when my husband suggested we should take the children to Orlando in Florida, we came to a compromise. I would find as many alternative activities for the family to enjoy, on the understanding we would never set foot in a theme park (not one with adrenaline rides anyway). The children, Ella, 11, and Ollie, 8, were sure I would relent once we got there.
While there's nothing particularly scenic about Orlando's main drag - the sprawling International Drive, with its huge shopping malls and eat-as-much-as-you-want buffet restaurants - if you drive south for 30 minutes to the Central Florida Everglades in Kissimmee, the scenery changes completely.
You can whizz through wetlands which stretch in either direction in an airboat at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures. Out on the water, we see alligators basking in the sun, their heads emerging from the murky depths. The children squeal with delight.
On land, there's a replica Native American village, where we learn about the Jororo Tribe, which once lived on the Kissimmee River, from a local. The children love his body piercings and tattoos.
To get close to the alligators, we head to Gatorland . The wildlife park has been dedicated to 'gators great and small for more than 70 years, and is 20 minutes by car from International Drive.
We goggle at 14ft monsters in the breeding marsh, feed medium-sized alligators bait, and see the razor-sharp teeth of beady-eyed babies.
As if we were in any doubt, The Gator Jumparoo and Up-Close Encounter shows, where keepers show off the power of some giants, demonstrate only too clearly that alligators are not to be messed with.
They don't call Florida the 'Sunshine State' for nothing. Orlando has year-round sun. So for a day in the shade, we head to WonderWorks, an indoor 'edutainment' centre on International Drive, which promisingly offers exploration and learning at the same time.
I feel smug that I am ticking the 'good parent' box, in zones including 'natural disasters' and 'space exploration', where we experience a hurricane and earthquake and take on a glow-in-the-dark rope course.
There are no big rides at WonderWorks, but head to ICON Park, less than a mile way, and you'll find a 400-ft observation wheel, where the far-reaching views stretch to the East coast.
Nights out on holiday can be restrictive with children, but at Old Town Kissimmee we join petrol heads in a gleaming Chevy from across the region for the Saturday night Classic Car Cruise.
Get lucky and you'll see a real rocket launch at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Merritt Island, just under an hour's drive from Orlando.
We get very lucky indeed, watching a satellite shoot into space. In the centre itself, there are enough exhibits to visit over several days. Walk underneath the suspended 364ft-long Saturn V, the largest rocket ever flown, and you feel very small.
Ella is particularly interested in the Heroes & Legends area, which documents the success of space pioneers. My husband is so impressed with the dramatic recreation of the 1969 Apollo 11 launch from the actual operation room used on the day that he goes back for more.
It was the children who spotted Epic McD, the world's largest entertainment McDonald's on West Sand Lake Road, not far from International Drive. It turns out to be a good find.
As well as a free soft play area, there's an arcade of 50 games with pre-loaded money cards.
Taking children shopping is an endurance test, but at Florida Mall the hands-on Crayola Experience helps a lot. Here we make personalised crayons.
Buying time for grown-up purchases of cut-price sportswear, my husband promises the children we'll later visit the huge M&M store.
Back home, Ollie has an alligator claw keyring from Gatorland, while Ella has a personalised Chevy number plate on her wall.
And no one asks why we didn't do theme parks.
